If we have SpringBoard, why do we have to pay for Pre-AP?
By purchasing Pre-AP, SpringBoard schools will gain access to the Pre-AP brand designation and externally scored assessments that are not part of SpringBoard. Also, SpringBoard customers will receive the maximum discount of 50% off the standard Pre-AP price.
Pre-AP courses go beyond ELA and math and are designed with a specific focus on cross-disciplinary alignment, meaning that each course will be teaching skills that are consistent across the subject areas. Pre-AP subjects currently include English 1 and 2, Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry with Statistics, World History and Geography, Biology, Chemistry, and Visual and Performing Arts, with more courses planned. The program emphasizes certain basic learning tenets and methodologies that augment and reinforce the SpringBoard curriculum in English and math.
